Tourist Information

The Dorset 100 is taking place in a prime tourist location. In addition to the natural landscape beauty, and the archaeology and historic interest in the county, there are a host of attractions.

The Visit-Dorset website is full of suggestions of places to go and things to do, but obviously is comprehensive rather than selective. These are the links to lists of Attractions in Weymouth and Portland and of Attractions in Dorset. We have also compiled a list of a few attractions that we feel should not be missed on another page.

For more information on specific aspects of Dorset, we have compiled separate web pages of Dorset Nature Notes, Prehistory, Thomas Hardy, and Local History. Much of the Dorset 100 is inside the Dorset Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and their website is full of information.
